card weekend. it's the opening weekend of the nfl play-offs, which is important to know because even if you are someone who does not care at all about football, you should know that the people in your life who do care about football are going to be very distracted this weekend, because there are four really good games. two on saturday, and two on sunday. it's called wildcard weekend for reasons that are mostly too boring to explain here. suffice it to say it's the first weekend of the play-offs that includes teams that did not all win their divisions, but they got into the play-offs anyway as wildcards. on the occasion of this wild card weekend in football land, the man who has decided to make himself washington's political wild card is the brand-newly retired massachusetts congressman barney frank. barney frank kicked off the weekend by going on tv this morning and said he would please like to be picked to be the new senator for massachusetts. he said he would like to be the interim replacement for john kerry, who is expected to be confirmed soon as president obama's new secretary o

in general. >> it is a toxic franchise. if you rated the different franchises in the nfl that have a high level of toxicity, redskins are probably in the top five. of that group. and my colleague thomas boswell wrote a column about this. he wasn't necessarily blaming directly the redskins but his point is when you go for the quick fix at all times, it is impossible to see the long-term view. that was the case that happened in that game. even beyond what was the injury, it wasn't the smart move to win that specific game. the short-term move, in my opinion, was the wrong move and in the long-term it didn't work out either. >> suched a good point. if you look at the franchise at least under the leadership of the danny dan schneider it has been quick fix after quick fix. let's get bruce smith to deion sanders. throwing people in and putting people at risk like they did with rgiii. they haven't taken the time to look ahead, build a good, solid franchise team and it really might have bit them in the last game. >> yeah. this is the one time that they did take the time to look ahead in terms of w
